13 subtle signs of a disrespectful husband
When two are in a relationship, they often don’t see clearly what is really happening because you are inside of the circle not looking at it from the outside. This happens to all of us not just you. That’s why we get defensive when our family or friends point out that our partner is not exactly the nicest person nor is he treating us like we deserve or he should with respect. We instinctually defend them and protect their name. But what we should be doing is taking their observations to heart, because they see what we don’t and they can point out what we obviously fail to put on the spotlight.
So if you are wondering if your husband has some deal-breaking flaws, here are the signs of a disrespectful husband that will help you figure out what you need to understand and shine light on it, so you can take action to make your life a healthier life and relationship.
#1 He doesn’t ask you about your needs. We all have needs. But some people are people-pleasers, so they don’t pay attention to their own needs. And others are selfish, so they don’t care about other people’s needs. If you sacrifice towards the relationship while he is a taker only and not a giver. So, if your husband doesn’t ask you what you need, then that is a huge problem this is a huge key to an unhealthy relationship leaving you the second or even third important individual in this relationship.
#2 He doesn’t listen to you. Women need to talk to people. They want to come home and tell their husbands about their day or something else interesting and exciting that happened to them. Or they just want to vent. So if your husband is only interested in watching the game on TV every day and doesn’t listen to you, then he probably doesn’t care. That would cause in a lot of pain and unhealthy pressure such as stress upon and don’t underestimate stress it could be very destroying.
#3 He doesn’t even talk to you. Do you find that your husband just goes into his man cave every day when he gets home from work? Can you remember the last time you had an actual conversation? Where he came up to you interested in what you are feeling. If you can’t, well, that’s one of the signs of a disrespectful husband… an uncaring husband. even though it might not seem like it is.
#4 He demands sex even when you’re not in the mood. Okay, this is borderline rape. I know most people think you can’t rape your spouse, but believe me you can and it is considered rape when you are forced in a sexual intercourse. That’s wrong and no one should that be done to them!
#5 He orders you around and treats you like a child. Does he tell you what he wants for dinner and that you need to clean the house? Does he yell to you orders around like you are a child or his slave or like he owns you ? If so, then don’t tolerate that. He is not your superior he isn’t your owner you are not some piece of property he can just act like he owns or has the title for it.
#6 He expects you to cook and clean with no help from him. Marriage should be a partnership. The wife should not be the maid, the cook, and the nanny. That’s what destroys a marriage when one thinks he is superior or too good to clean the house or help his wife! If you are married that’s partnership 50/50 he should want to help you anyway out of love if he doesn’t don’t tolerate that!
#7 He never compliments you. We all love to get compliments. Okay, some people are uncomfortable with them because they have low self-esteem.but hearing and being reminded by someone you love how they see you and what they love about you is often nice. So if you never hear anything nice from him, it is one of the signs of a disrespectful husband and uncaring a loving husband and respectful will make sure you never doubt your femininity.
#8 He’s not affectionate. And no, I’m not talking sex. Yes, many men want sex all the time *and some never do*, but sex does not necessarily equal affection. He should hold your hand, cuddle with you on the couch, and hug you on a daily basis. If not, that’s not respectful he most likely not even in caring zone on how you feel or wanting to be close to you! This isn’t something you deserve to put up with.
#9 He criticizes you. No one should EVER criticize you. Let me repeat that one more time… no one should ever criticize you! That’s not to say that they shouldn’t politely and calmly point out that they would like you to make changes but criticize and making you feel terrible about yourself is not acceptable, but they need to do it in a polite manner. So, if he’s not doing that, then it’s one of the top signs of a disrespectful husband.
#10 He lays any kind of hand on you. This one should be a no-brainer, but unfortunately, it’s not for many women. Men should NEVER EVER EVER EVER hit you or physically hurt you in any manner what-so-ever. I mean what so ever So, you need to hightail it out of there ASAP if he is physical abusive to you. Or verbally you do not need to put up with that find the exit door Now!!
#11 He isolates you. Does he keep you at home and away from your friends and family? He might even say “it’s for your own good” or “I want you to myself.” That’s one of the huge signs of a disrespectful husband. He is brainwashing you and trying to control your life trying to make you assume that he is loving or jealous the cute kind of jealous. NOOO! MA’AM no woman should ever give up her character to a man! God made you so beautiful not for a man to control you.
#12 He blames you for everything and never takes any personal responsibility. It takes two to tango. And a hand can’t clap by itself. No person in a marriage is completely 100% without blame. So, if he’s always blaming you for everything and anything, then he is being very disrespectful. It means he is emotionally immature and cannot have a healthy relationship. Nor can he man up to what he has done wrong. Little by little you are going to start believing that you are always at wrong but you are not do not allow him to say such a thing.
#13 He says you’d be nothing without him. This is a form of verbal abuse. Many men use this as a form of control to make their wives think that they can’t survive without them, because they are weak and the weaker they are the more they try to destroy you or brain wash you. and that they are no good. They do this because they have low self-esteem and are trying to drag you down to their level. Don’t let him do it. Move on! Exit out if they don’t come forward to what they are doing wrong in this relationship.
Marriage should be a safe haven – a relationship that comforts you from the cruel outside world. The home! To you to come too So, if you can relate to any of these signs of a disrespectful husband, and an uncaring one you should get help and consider your options to make your life happier. A healthy life is a happy life! No one should have to go through this!
